I Forge Iron

Another newbie to smithing

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to introduce myself. Old fart that's been working with metal my whole adult life in one form or another but never really started smithing. I had collected an anvil, tongs and a foot operated vise etc. but sold it all 5 years ago thinking I didn't need another hobby. Yes I'm sick about it. So I've been trying to build-up what I sold off. So far I've built a coal forge, 2 track anvils and gathered mis. stuff. Located in central Ks. and would like to meet up with other smiths in this area.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. It doe's seem to get pretty drafty when we old farts gather! I already figured out the drum I used for my forge should be deeper so I'm going to change it out for one off of my truck, turns out to be timing as I just did the brakes.
